Streaming XML

"The Streaming API for XML (StAX) parsing will specify a Java-based, pull-parsing API for XML. The streaming API gives parsing control to the programmer by exposing a simple iterator based API. This allows the programmer to ask for the next event (pull the event) and allows state to be stored in a procedural fashion."

More information: JSR 173 Streaming API for XML, Specification and Reference Implementation and an article from Oracle comparing DOM, SAX and StAX Parsing.
